`Invention` Protection

Hello everyone-
I have an idea for a product, but I`m concerned about how to protect it. Let me use an example that will hopefully help.
For example, I have thought of the idea of a standard, round ball, Christmas ornament. I haven`t seen or heard of this product before. I can make them in many different colors and sizes, and I can also put artwork or other logos on them. It seems it would be easy enough for a competitor to create a similar product with different colors, shapes and artwork/logos.
What type of protection would I need (TM, Patent, C), and would that protect my idea when competitors start selling a similar, but slightly different, product, as stated above?
